Ideal Toy Company stated on the package of the original Rubik cube that there were more than three billion possible states the cube could attain. It’s analogous to Mac Donald’s proudly announcing that they’ve sold more than 120 hamburgers.

Actual there are 43,252,003,274,489,856,000 possible states, which is a far bigger number than 3,000,000,000.
